Every card in the Lord of the Rings Tarot shows a scene from Middle-earth, the setting of J. R. R. Tolkien’s famous trilogy. The text at the bottom of each card describes the scene chosen which corresponds to the meaning of the card.
This deck follows the traditional tarot, but joins to it the spirit and mythological symbolism of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. In addition, this deck is also a card game for 2-6 players, ages 10-adult. Players journey to Middle-earth to destroy the One Ring. Tarot reader Terry Donaldson and artist Peter Pracownik co-created this deck as well as the Dragon Tarot. The game rules are by designer Mike Fitzgerald. There is a companion book The Lord of the Rings Tarot Book, but it’s now out of print. Donaldson is also the creator of the Lord of the Rings Oracle.
